What does Micah’s proposition mean for his son?

Judges 17:10 (ESV)

10 And Micah said to him, “Stay with me, and be to me a father and a priest, and I will give you ten pieces of silver a year and a suit of clothes and your living.” And the Levite went in.

We get no sense that Micah, in light of his offer to the Levite, is at all troubled that this effectively makes his own son’s role as priest to be redundant.
